Got ADS-B?
STORY

DAVID HUGHES, NEXTGEN PERFORMANCE AND OUTREACH, FEDERAL AVIATION ADMINISTRATION

R

epair shop operators in the U.S. say the time is
now for customers to schedule an Automatic
Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B)
installation because waiting risks not being able to get
an installation done by the 2020 deadline.
The Federal Aviation Administration also is trying to
educate aircraft owners with a new website designed to
answer any question they might have about an ADS-B

The FAA offers an online resource devoted to educating the pilot community
on the ADS-B mandate at www.faa.gov/go/equipadsb.

installation, including how to equip a particular aircraft
and what equipment has been FAA certified. This new
website at www.faa.gov/go/equipadsb is up to date with
the latest information.
Most repair shops can only work on a few aircraft
at a time, so aircraft owners should not put an ADS-B
installation off for too long, according to Chuck
Gallagher, manager of Cincinnati Avionics at the
Clermont County Airport in Batavia, Ohio.
Be an early bird
It is still possible to be an early bird in the migration of as
many as 200,000 general aviation aircraft owners who will
install ADS-B avionics by the 2020 deadline.
"My best customers are really on the ball, and they have
already equipped to beat the rush," Gallagher said.
Many other general aviation aircraft owners Gallagher talks
to are starting to turn into the wind, as well.
"I think people believe it's a hard deadline and they are
starting to get serious," he said. "But you will always have
some who will wait and won't be able to fly in most controlled
airspace on Jan. 1, 2020."
Gallagher said it is possible for the owner of a Cessna 172
valued at $25,000 to equip with ADS-B for under $5,000,
including installation. That makes the purchase affordable for
most people, so it appears to be the "magic number," he added.
